Now we will learn about the various tools which we will require for App development. We have to download 5 different tools:
NodeJS's package is
npm. It is one of the largest ecosystem of open source libraries. We will use
npm to download Cordova, JS libraries, various plugins, packages etc.
The command line interface of cordova is used to create, build, deploy and manage applications based on cordova. From creating project to building the executable file, we will use command line interface in this tutorial.
It is a Software Development Kit(SDK) which includes all the necessary libraries required to build Android App. So if we wish to develop Android Apps, we need this.
It is Java Develoment Kit (JDK) which is used to develop Java Applications. Again very important.
As in this quick tutorial, we will be developing an Android Application using Cordova, hence, the above mentioned tools. In the next tutorial, we will learn how to setup all these tools on your computer/laptop.
